|I had to scold Isobel when she wanted to jump up and down the couch instead.|
But we had to get the shot. So we tried, and tried...
and tried again. Finally, I think we got the shot. Will post it once it's published.
Isobel and Iman. The loves of my life. Don't get me wrong, but at days I do feel so cross with myself for being so cross at them. Especially busy days and when I feel I've neglected my role as a mother and wife. Does this make sense?
Being a mother. Who said it's going to be easy?
My mum made 'being a parent' seem so effortless. How did she do it? Beats me. Having gone through her own personal challenges whilst looking after the four of us and losing one child; yet still being so positive, kind, patient and full of life! I inspire to be just like her; although I'm nowhere NEAR her parenting skills and kindred soul. God bless mothers like mummy.

Although mother's/father's/friendship/valentine's day should be a daily reminder of gratefulness and appreciation, my sister Michelle-Ann and I are still suckers for the commercialized 'celebration' of THE day.
So while we were scouting out what to get mum for Mother's Day this year (the internet is a wealth of goodies I tell you!), I came across this floral online shop bloom2u.com. I have ordered flowers online previously and to be quite honest, I've never heard of them. So being the kiasu shopper that I am, I decided to surf their website and got around getting in touch with the owner. I must say, I'm pretty upset I didn't know about them prior to this! They have such beautiful and unique arrangements (unlike some florists who have that typical 'ah soh' type of flower arrangements). I mean, check this one out:
|Spectacular! So deliciously sexy. I've got some inspiration now for my Aphrodite outfit for this new show I'm involved with in June.|
This is one of their stores located at C13 Intermark Mall, Kuala Lumpur. They have 2 more. One at Ikano Power Centre (Mutiara Damansara) and the other at the Empire Shopping Gallery Mall (Subang Jaya).
|Browsing inside their store, you get this feeling you are in a home decor boutique cum florist. Very warm and cosy!|

Okay, so like I said, being the non-stop chatterbox that I am - John and I got talking and ta-dahhh.... guess what?
See the two GORGEOUS flower cakes below? Bloom2u and I would like to give away either one to my loyal readers with the BEST Mother's Day message sent HERE.
In the meantime, John and I need to discuss a little special flower arrangement for both mummy AND hubs who's birthday is coming up soon. *heart*
LOVE IS IN THE FLOWER SCENTED AIR.
Remember to post your messages HERE to win your mother a flower cake like the above.
Hmmm....maybe I'll bake a cake that is shaped similar to Bloom2u's flower cake. Choices, choices.
Gotta go. Iman Daniella needs her nenen. =)
